2017 Global Encryption Trends Study
The study is based on a survey of
over 4,800 individuals in 11 countries.
This twelfth installment of the Global Encryption Trends Study, conducted by the Ponemon Institute and sponsored by Thales e-Security, reveals both deployment plans and pains associated with increasingly aggressive cloud and data protection strategies.
Use Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) on-premise to help secure cloud applications
Rate employee mistakes as the most significant threat to sensitive data
Have a consistent encryption strategy
On average, companies today are using their public key infrastructure (PKI) to support eight different applications – but current approaches to PKI are fragmented and do not always incorporate best practices. This study of over 1500 individuals in 11 countries reveals top PKI deployment trends and drivers for future PKI planning.Learn More
Organizations trying to balance the risk of data breaches against the cost of pervasive encryption often struggle with the tradeoff. This paper defines criteria to help organizations decide which applications or data would benefit most from hardware-based encryption and key protection.Learn More
